Roux-en-Y-Bariatric Surgery Reduces Markers of Metabolic Syndrome in Morbidly Obese Patients

AbstractBackgroundObesity is closely linked to increased markers of metabolic syndrome and development of diabetes. Roux-en-Y bariatric surgery reduces hyperinsulinemia and improves insulin sensitivity and hence benefits morbidly obese patients.AimTo determine changes in markers of metabolic syndrome, pancreatic function, and hepatic insulin sensitivity in patients before and 1  year after undergoing Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery.MethodsWe enrolled 43 consecutive patients in a single center. Markers for metabolic syndrome included proinsulin, insulin, C-peptide, liver enzymes, and serum levels of selected microRNAs hsa-miR-122, hsa-miR-130, hsa-miR-132, and hsa-miR-375.ResultsAfter surgery, all patients showed a significant 37% drop of body mass index (p

It affects several organ systems, including the pulmonary and cardiac systems. Furthermore, it induces pulmonary and cardiac changes that can result in right and/or left heart failure.Areas covered: In this review, authors provide an overv...

Conclusion Taken together, evidence from animal and human studies demonstrates that the brain detects levels of circulating nutrients and hormones and consequently organizes an outward response that contributes to the regulation of whole-body glucose homeostasis. However, there are major knowledge gaps about the exact nature of this response and its relative importance compared to peripheral processes. As we have seen, animal studies have provided an anatomical map of CNS glucose regulation and have identified important neurons and neural circuits involved. Additionally, the CNS sensing of key nutrients and hormones has b...

Conclusions: Bariatric surgery appears to be capable of partially reversing the obesity-related epigenome. The identification of potential epigenetic biomarkers predictive for the success of bariatric surgery may open new doors to personalized therapy for severe obesity. Introduction Obesity is currently a huge healthcare problem, worldwide, and is a risk factor for several diseases such as type 2 diabetes (T2D), cardiovascular disease and cancer (1). As the prevalence of obesity reaches pandemic proportions, this metabolic disease is estimated to become the biggest cause of mortality in the near future (2). In fact,...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThe purpose of this review is to examine recent evidence supporting effectiveness of bariatric surgery and abdominal lipectomy as interventional strategies aimed at reduction in incidence of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and related morbidity and mortality in obese and metabolic syndrome patients.Recent FindingsWhile several studies show reduction in CVD risk factors in patients who have undergone both the Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy, very few demonstrate actual improvements in cardiovascular function, or a decrease in CVD events or CVD-related mortality. Consequently, the cardio...

AbstractIntroduction/PurposeMetabolic syndrome is commonly demonstrated in patients with morbid obesity undergoing bariatric surgery. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of metabolic syndrome on morbidity and mortality following bariatric surgery.Materials and MethodsThe National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (NSQIP) dataset was queried for patients who underwent bariatric surgical procedures between 2012 and 2014. Patient demographics, comorbid conditions, bariatric procedure type, and postoperative complications were analyzed. Metabolic syndrome was defined as having a body mass index> &thinsp...

This study aimed to explore the effect of biliopancreatic limb and Roux limb lengths during laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) procedures on weight loss and T2DM control. We studied the clinical records of 58 patients with metabolic syndrome, T2DM, and body mass index (BMI) 32 to 50 kg/m2 who underwent LRYGB in our hospital. The short limb group (Group A) underwent LRYGB with a limb length of 160 to 200 cm (n = 31) and the long limb group (Group B) underwent LRYGB with a limb length of 210 to 240 cm (n = 27) were compared. The occurrence of acute or chronic internal hernia in Group B was higher t...

ConclusionsThe results of this pilot study show that RYGB fundamentally alters microRNA expression in circulation with a time-dependent progressive departure in profile from the preoperative baseline and indicate that microRNAs are potentially novel biomarkers for the benefits of bariatric surgery.

The latest diabetes consensus identified obesity as key component of the metabolic syndrome. The role of bariatric surgery over such syndrome has been less explored with a lack of long term studies, and especially among Mexicans.
